YOUGHAL GROUP CELTIC INVASION to Headline St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations in Kuwait. The Youghal-based group Celtic Invasion have been invited to perform at the Kuwait Irish Society’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Ball, which will be held in the Hilton Hotel, Kuwait, on the 18th March. The Kuwait Irish Society will celebrate 20 years in existence this year with a Gala Ball in one of Kuwait’s most exclusive hotels. Celtic Invasion are delighted to be given this opportunity and look forward to representing Ireland on the international stage.
Formed in 1991 following their success in Clonakilty’s International Buskers’ Festival , Celtic Invasion looked set for big things, with subsequent appearances on the Gay Byrne Radio Show and the highly popular Bibi show. Having spent many years exploring their own interests, the group decided to reform in 2010, bringing together year’s of experience and innovation to their music. World music influences now feature strongly in their performances, but they have remained loyal to their traditional music roots. With Influences of Bluegrass, Cajun, Baltic and Country, Celtic Invasion have created a truly unique sound, fusing mandolin, piano accordion and guitar with a strong backline of piano, percussion and bass.
